Travel Insurance Comparison

At Downunder, we believe in complete transparency, not only in our policy information, but also in how we compare to other travel insurers in terms of cost. We believe our travel insurance policies offer great value for money and every year we help a large number of travellers to be protected whilst abroad.

We have compared our most popular policy, the Backpacker Policy, to the closest possible policies available from other travel insurers who offer backpacker insurance - we've also added in our Comprehensive Policy pricing for your information.

It is worth remembering when you compare travel insurance that whilst price is an important consideration, you also need to be aware of the level of cover being offered. Our Comprehensive Cover will cover up to £10 million for Medical Emergency & Repatriation and £2,000,000 per policy for Personal Liability - so you will be in safe hands if the worst happens.

Our policies start from 5 days in length and can extend for up to 18 months. In the table below, we have decided to present you with the most common length of policy purchases although of course you can manually compare other lengths of policy for yourself. The lengths of policy shown will, however, give you an idea of how Down Under travel insurance compares.
